Regarding "A higher calling, a lower salary", Ha'Aretz, November 7, 2004: G'd save us from ( former ) Prime Ministers who are doing us a favor by giving up highly lucrative jobs and deals in order to impose their state-saving visions upon us. Where are the days when Israel had great, real leaders who dedicated their lives to public service first and foremost out of Zionist ideals and for the good of the Jewish people, not mainly in order to use their acquired expertise later in life for their own personal profit? Of course men such as Ehud Barak, Ariel Sharon and Benyamin Netanyahu have their merits when it comes to serving their country, but it would be nice if the people of Israel for once would get the feeling that its so-called leaders had its - and not their own - interests in mind with every single decision they make.
